Deadlines June 2014

Deadlines. For things. Jewellery related.

You know the drill.

18th June – New NEWS: Note the corrected date on this call-out “New Necklaces: 500+ Designs from Around the World – image request for a book edited by Nicolas Estrada. Due 20th July 2014.”

Sorry if I scared you with the 20th of June date I had posted earlier (if it’s any consolation, I scared me too…). But hey, now you can use that extra time to make more work/get better photos/teach yourself to knit.


For recent CaFE entries I encourage you to see what is being offered by checking out their site and even signing up for the email updates.

Are you in The Britain? Sign up to the benchpeg newsletter, whydoncha? They’ll send you a much more professional newsletter with this kind of material, weekly.

*** This month’s new additions***
